* TTFN

I've thought long and hard about whether or not I'll play my game again - and I currently have no answer. I've not loaded it up in quite some time, and have no inclination to either. Real life ain't so bad once you give it a good go.

I felt the need to write this post to say thank you to all of you that have made playing this game a much richer experience. The simming community is amongst the biggest and best out there, and it's been a pleasure (mostly) to be a part of it. I've made a few wonderful *keeper* friends, and some great acquaintances. I've even made a few enemies... which was fun!

I won't say that I'll never play again - I just might. This blog is going to remain here - fully intact - just in case I *get the urge*.

The best-laid schemes o' mice an' men
Gang aft agley.

If you're wondering where I am and what I'm doing - you can find me here, under my real name - the whole *incognito/username* thing was fun with the sims - but not so much without it. Yes. I am rolling my eyes at myself, right along with you. I've traded the sims in for my first obsession - food and cooking and EATING!

Here's where I send a huge hug to Ninoo. Because I can.

Much love

L xx

  3. Please keep Saving the Sims in mind if you ever decide to end the blog. We'd upload your creations to Yahoo groups to keep them available. I personaly like you work quite a bit, and I'm sure other do too. I have a yahoo account under schoepfvirginia if you want to eMAIL me. Ginnie

    1. Ginnie, thankyou very much - I will certainly bear Saving The Sims in mind should I decide to remove this blog. Though I'll be completely honest and say that I have no intention of closing the door on the possibility of playing my game again. Perhaps when I can gain some permanent perspective and use it as recreation and not a way of life, I'll come back to it.

      Never say "never" ;0)

  4. Wow I am so out of the loop! lol

    I am sure you will be sadly missed from all over the community Lily, I know I missed you heaps when you left LS :*( (Not that I showed it and sorry for that.)

    Anyways I just had a poke at your cooking blog and OMG I think you might be my savior. I cant cook to save myself but a quick glance made me think maybe I can :)

    Cant wait to try that peanut butter one...mmm mmmmmmm


    Is it a sad thing that I had to hit retry on the captcha code like 20 times before I could read it?

    1. Bless your heart, Kim - thankyou!

      I'm assuming you mean captcha code at the *other blog*, so I'll go remove it. Must have missed that when setting the blog up... and yes.. it is sad that it took you 20 times. It usually only takes me about 19 ;oP xx

    2. Hah! You meant here - had NO idea I'd set it up like that. All gone now :0) xx

  7. I had been wondering why I had not seen you around as much online. I understand where you are coming from with not wanting to play the game- I have been feeling like that myself, and have not played for over a month due to boredom and RL. Love your cooking blog too- will have to try some of them out sometime, so long as I can find a suitable NZ equivalent to some of the ingredients. Take Care xx

  8. It was kinda freaky weird kiddo, I haven't been in the sim community for a while. It no longer interests me (the game, not the people). I just came on to blogger to post some 'close down' notices for Velvet's and Moments. I wanted to let you know in particular and what do I find? Well, a new website from my pal Lil'/Abbe! And cooking! The food looks good hon and I will now be stalking you there! :D

    Love ya sweetie, missed you and I hope to see you in ether space soon! *smooches*

    1. OMG I had a Prince moment too - I'm so glad you're still about my darlin'. It's rather sad to say goodbye to an obsession, but great to start a new one - I think :Z

      We shall have to stalk each other ;)

      Much love... Abbe, formerly known as Lil :P

  9. LILY!!!!!
    I am so behind times! RL has been a priority for me too lately, what with my BFF facing the end. But I will miss you, child. You are one of the few real people in this community. A peep who tells it the way it is. And I love that about you. But I fully understand your decision. I've been feeling the same way too since this past Summer. Maybe it's my age, but am really tired of all the childishness.
    Anyway, have checked out your "real" blog, and WTF!!! girl! There's goes my diet.And I was doing so good too.
    Anyway, thanks for being a friend to me. And don't disappear altogether.
    Care about you, child!

    1. Aaaaw Pat, you are an absolute sweetheart *blows big wet doobie kiss* - I have no intention of disappearing altogether, I promise. I hope that for the Sims it really is only TTFN and that I might return to it one day - it's occupied me for nigh on ten years!!! The patina dulled recently to a point where the cracks were evident. Real life really is much more interesting than anything we can create for our pixelated dollies. It was way past time to stop avoiding it.

      I am so sorry that your BFF is at the end of a journey. My heart breaks for you both. It's never easy to be the one that's left behind.

      We must stay in touch, Pat - even friends we can't hug physically, are worth keeping hold of.

      If you're reading this, that goes for you too Rebecca.

      Luvs ya xx

  10. Lily, I don't know where the fram I was when you posted this or why it has taken me this long to finally read it, but I just want to say that I miss you!!! I completely understand losing interest in the game (it's even happened to *me* before! Shocking, I know! :), and I'm glad that you're having fun with reality. :) Your cooking blog looks AMAZING -- it's rare for me to skim a cooking blog and immediately want to cook the first five recipes I see (I don't cook!), but I felt that way with yours. I will definitely have to try some of them out! Plus it's just so fun to read your writing again. I've always been a fan. *hugs*

    1. Bless your heart, Jen! This was really lovely to come across in my emails. Thankyou. I miss you too... and your own wonderful world of Sims :D I pop into the forum very rarely for a quick chat with Dee, and to admire what everyone's been creating, but I feel no pull towards the game at all any more. I wish I did. It was fun until it wasn't ;)

      I'm so very glad that you hit the link to my cooking blog and liked it! I value your opinion - I've always loved your writing skills too. I'm not obsessed by it (the blog), as I was when I began it, so am rather enjoying whatever I do with it now... and it gives me an outlet for a very small spot of writing... I get to swear a lot too :D

      Please, please drop by and let me know if you do cook any of it, and how it goes... in all the gory details!!! It would be lovely to stay in touch.

    1. Sweetheart, I miss you too - I'm NEVER at TSD anymore. Haven't even had time to pop in and chat with Dee lately. I don't play the sims at all now, so have no reason to go there... though lately I have started to miss it a little!!! The game, not the forum :O

      Huge hugs xoxoxo
